Apparently about 150 people fall from large ships each year and three quarters of them are not found again. I can’t even image what it would be like to know you are no more than a speck in a vast ocean and the likelihood of being found is near zero. This is a tragic loss of life and a terrible way to go.
The good news is that a pair of clever Australian inventors created life buoys fitted with Global Positioning Systems. The floatation aids use the satellite tracking technology to help rescue crews find people lost at sea.
They are currently still in the trial process, but this led me to thinking about how God doesn’t need technology to find us.
He will find us in the storms.
He will find us in the fogs.
He will find us in the darkness.
God is our Rescuer.
He keeps us afloat when the anxieties of life threaten to drown us. We only have to reach out and accept that help.
